OK, one more: "Sex Appeal," from Mappamundi's upcoming cd...


This was one of the first songs I fell for in our Warsaw Cabaret project. Above, us playing it in public for the first time (way too fast I guess)...

Below: it was a hit in the 1930s both in its original Polish-language version, performed here in the 1937 movie "Piętro wyżej" (Upstairs) by Eugeniusz Bodo, a big Polish movie star, in drag, playing Mae West...


and by Menashe Oppenheim, who sang it in Yiddish.
